Speaking Of Life 2049 | Religious Sinners

When we look at the life of Jesus, we find him spending time with those who are lost, broken, and hurt while the learned and educated pharisees disheartened him. Let us be open to the healing and transformative power of Jesus, looking past our religious practices and focusing on building our relationships with Jesus.

Speaking Of Life 2048 | Ministry With Jesus

We’ve been doing ministry daily that we tend to do it FOR God instead of doing it WITH God. Jesus tells us that ministry should not be a task that disrupts our relationship with the Father but rather another way of participating in that relationship where we come to know the Father’s love for us and the whole world. Let us be reminded to constantly spend time with God as we participate in His ministry.

Speaking Of Life 2046 | Dissolving Disagreements

Sometimes we easily just get angry. We can’t help but argue with people we disagree with. Paul reminds us of a similar situation that happened with two women in Philippians 4 that had some disagreements but later worked together in sharing the gospel. Let us continue to allow the Holy Spirit to work through us so people can see Christ’s love through us.

Speaking Of Life 2045 | The Cornerstone Question

A cornerstone is a foundational piece in building a house. It must be perfect so it can hold the entire structure. Do you have a cornerstone in your life? In our human perspective, some pieces may not seem to fit perfectly but the gospel tells us that it is through Jesus that we will be made whole. Will you look to Jesus as your cornerstone?

Speaking Of Life 2044 | Open Hands Close Eyes

Daily life is full of tricks and confusion. You don’t know who to trust or listen to. But what if God told you to “hold out your hands and close your eyes?” Would you trust him? In fact, this is what the Father asked his own Son to do. On the cross, Jesus held out his hands to share his father’s love with the whole world. Jesus knew the Father to be good, trustworthy, and full of grace. Even in stretching his hands out on the cross. Let us open our hands and close our eyes and ask Jesus to show us his Father.

Speaking Of Life 2043 | Belly of the Whale

Just like Jonah, have you ever been swallowed up? Alone in the dark, worried, confused, and afraid? Even in our darkest moments, God can reveal himself to us and fulfill the purpose he has for us through his Son.

Speaking Of Life 2042 | Ripples in the World

When you skip a stone across a body of water, the stone sends ripples through the surface of the water. Just like the stone, sometimes our actions can cause ripples in our community. Let us consider the impact of our actions that we may send out positive ripples and reflect the love of Jesus.

How can our friendship and imitation of Jesus change our daily lives? Do our friends and family see Christ through us? It is in the daily walk and relationship with Jesus in which we are formed and changed. Put on his actions. Put on his love. Put on the Lord Jesus Christ.
